Hood lid cable broken - emergency release ?

Pulling the hood latch today snapped the cable on my Panamera 2010

Is there an emergency release somewhere ? Maybe underneath one of the front inner plastic fenders ?

Found on rennlist
Figured it out. The plastic retainer clip was broke on my hood release, so my cable just came out. Took out front grill, push hand through air scoop for radiator, was able to reach around and put the cable back in.

No emergency release. You will have to remove the release lever and, if necessary, the door sill to access the cable. There is a bracket behind the lever that holds the cable.



Remove lever for front lid release -1- .
1. 1.1. Release lock -2- using a small screwdriver -A- .
2. 1.2. Remove lever for front lid release -1- (-B- ).

Okay, what about getting the grey lid behind it off to get to the assemply ? Is it just the regular spring loaded plugs that needs to be pulled out?

Two screws holding it...




Then, pivot the top down towards the center of the car. There is a tab that holds the bottom in place.
